The secondary chirp alerts you to an open trigger, probably the hood pin switch since the car is not remote starting. Check under the hood for a broken or bent out of place hood pin switch. Make the adjustment so the pin makes contact with the hood when the hood is closed.

SOURCE: After starting vehicle with remote

Hi,

According to your problem you can first change your remote battery to if it is not malfunctioned for battery. Before start the vehicle press lock key for 1 second to lock the door from remote. If the door locks are connected then horn will honk and the parking light will flash once. If the system is armed then status Led will flash once per second. After check it you can start your vehicle. But don't remote start your vehicle when the key is in ignition. It may help you to solve your problem.

To know more you can follow the manual.

Avital alarm wont lock or unlock doors


If the remote is arming and disarming the alarm then, it should be locking and unlocking the doors as well. The door lock and unlock wires need to be connected. Are sure that they are connected? Do the door locks work with the switch?

The way the system was set up?! Here is what it sounds like. If you cannot start the car with the key but, you can start it with the remote starter means two things; the car has a starter inhibit installed and it's active or, the starter wire is cut and isolated from the ignition cylinder and the remote starter is connected to the starter side only of said cut wire.
About the keyless entry; Ford vehicle have a battery save mode that, after 10 minutes or so, the GEM module goes to sleep. The installation of a keyless entry system on these vehicles require connections at the unlock, driver's door ajar/latch wire and factory alarm disarm and programmed to double pulse. This will wake up the GEM and unlock the doors.

I have a 2000 ford mustang. Suddenly my keyless entry remote stopped working. I replaced the battery and turned the off and on 8 times and the locks cycled. after which i pushed the unlock but nothing...


The keyless entry system is controlled by the (GEM) - generic electronic module .
Keyless Entry The electronic door lock system has two main components:
  • generic electronic module (GEM)(14B204)
  • keyless entry remote transmitter (15K601)
  • NOTE: Battery power and ground must be remove before disconnecting the GEM connectors to avoid setting false codes.
    Power Locks Operation The power locks feature allows the customer to lock and unlock the doors via momentary switches located on the driver and passenger door. When the GEM detects a momentary press of the driver or passenger lock button, the GEM will supply power to the driver or passenger lock actuators for approximately 250 ms from relays internal to the GEM. When the GEM detects a momentary press of the driver or passenger unlock button, the GEM will supply power to the driver or passenger unlock actuators for approximately 250 ms from relays internal to the GEM.
    Remote Keyless Entry Door Locks Operation The remote entry feature allows the customer to unlock the driver door, unlock all doors, and lock all doors using a valid remote transmitter as long as the ignition switch is not in RUN or START. The driver door is unlocked whenever the GEM detects a valid remote transmitter unlock transmission. All the doors are unlocked when the GEM detects a second valid remote transmitter unlock transmission within three seconds of the first transmission. All the doors are locked when the GEM detects a valid remote transmitter lock transmission. If the GEM detects a second valid remote transmitter lock transmission within three seconds of the first transmission, the doors will lock again, the horn will sound for 20 ms and the parking lamps will flash for 200 ms to indicate the doors are locked. If the GEM detects the driver or passenger door is ajar during the second lock transmission, the doors are locked again and the horn is sounded twice. If the GEM detects a valid remote transmitter lock transmission within three seconds of detecting a valid remote transmitter unlock transmission, the GEM will lock all the doors
    • The doors do not lock/unlock using the remote transmitter
    • Ignition switch.
    • GEM.
    • Remote transmitter.
    • Remote transmitter batteries.
    • GO to Pinpoint Test C .
    You followed the program instructions to the letter ? Programming -Keyless Entry Remote Transmitter NOTE: All keyless entry remote transmitters (15K601) must be programmed at the same time.
    NOTE: All previous transmitter identification codes (TIC's) will be erased when programming mode is entered.
    NOTE: To program (or reprogram) the keyless entry remote transmitters into the generic electronic module (GEM)(14B204), perform the following steps.
    1. Turn the ignition from OFF to RUN eight times within 10 seconds, ending in RUN. If the GEM has successfully entered program mode, it will lock and unlock all the doors.
    1. NOTE: The first TIC must be entered within 7.5 seconds of entering the program mode and additional TICs must be entered within 7.5 seconds of the first TIC. The programming mode is exited whenever the timing constraints are not met.
      Press any button on a keyless entry remote transmitter, and the doors will lock and then unlock to confirm that each keyless entry remote transmitter has been programmed.
    1. If the door locks do not respond for any keyless entry remote transmitter, wait for several seconds and press the button again.
    1. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position, or wait up to five minutes after step 1, to exit program mode. If a keyless entry remote transmitter has been programmed (or reprogrammed), the GEM will lock and unlock all the doors one last time.

My valet remote control RPN491 Starts vehiclr and unlocks doors but will not lock doors do I need to reprogram remoteto unlock doors?


Ok you said "unlock doors' but you said it already unlocks the doors. This remote should lock and unlock door on same button, if you are describing the 2 button remote. If it is not then it could be alot of things. Does the alarm lock itself? Does the alarm lock the door when you turn on the ignition? More info is really needed. Like what veh and what model alarm.

Lock all the doors from the inside (with all the doors closed), unlock your driver's door by manually lifting the lock, then press it back down after you are out - this will prevent the alarm from sounding when you use the key to unlock the door.
